I agree, the faw spam teams are annoying. But overall, I still just don't buy the cruisers online moniker. Shield stripping sci ships and bursty escorts still have a place and I'd place a balanced squad of a healboat cruisers a few or a couple scis and escorts against a FAWking team any day.

However, i'm going to disagree somewhat with the original poster, while I have some issues with the new sets, I don't think the game has become a gear race at least not anymore than it was in the past.

Let's not have rose-tinted glasses about the past. Back in the day everybody ran a 3 piece borg set coupled with the aegis or Cov Cap*3 shield.

I sorta like that the new sets have added variety and a bit more strategic thinking into the mix.

Now folks have to ask themselves does the maco set make more sense for a sci?

Maco Shield versus Aegis?

etc etc.
